St. Louis linebacker James Laurinaitis thinks it's about time Rams running back Steven Jackson got more recognition for his long, productive career.
On Sunday, Jackson became the 27th player in NFL history to rush for 10,000 yards when he ran for 73 yards in a 36-22 loss to Minnesota.
Laurinaitis, who leads the Rams (6-7-1) with 153 tackles, believes Jackson hasn't gotten enough credit for reaching that milestone.
''I think it's been a disservice all week to (the) national media that people haven't been talking about his 10,000th,'' Laurinaitis said Thursday. ''The way he handles himself as a pro is unbelievable. Especially in this day and age. Running backs have a short life. It's a passing league now. And we've got somebody on our squad that has done this impressively for a long time.
It's an honor to be his teammate.''
Jackson, the former Oregon State star in his ninth NFL season, is closing in on another milestone....

ST. LOUIS Like most fathers of six kids, Scott Wells expects Christmas morning to be quite the show at his home. Wrapping paper will fly. There will be few hours of sleep. At some point during the blizzard of activity near the tree, he'll give thanks for three gifts.
"It will be chaos," said Wells, the St. Louis Rams' center, who in August adopted three Ugandan...
Sam Bradford has never cared much for numbers and statistics.
So the St. Louis Rams quarterback was surprised to find out he has been sacked in 30 successive games, the longest current streak in the NFL.
''That's great to know, thanks,'' he chuckled.
Bradford, the top overall pick in the 2010 draft, has endured his share of bumps and bruises this season, having...
On Sunday many watched as Adrian Peterson carved up the St. Louis Rams for 212 yards. The Minnesota running back is chasing a 2000-yard season and Eric Dickerson’s single season rushing record, but you all knew that. What many people didn’t realize is what the running back on the other side of the ball was doing.

According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter (Insider), should Rams RB Steven Jackson decide to void his contract and become a free agent following the season, the Green Bay Packers could be a potential suitor for the veteran running back.
“The Packers have always been interested in Jackson and now that his contract is up, it would make some sense for Green Bay to take a look,” writes...

It’s week 16 and the Rams are still mathematically alive for a playoff spot, even in the tougher NFC. It’s not an accomplishment for most teams, but given this team’s recent history, it is for them. They’ve definitely played some decent football this year and...
While not eliminated from playoff contention, the St. Louis Rams are very close to seeing their postseason hopes end - something that's already happened for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
The Rams look to get back on track after a damaging loss with their fourth win in five games when they visit the sinking Bucs on Sunday.
A three-game win streak bolstered St. Louis' chances...
St. Louis Rams (6-7-1) Tampa Bay Buccaneers (6-8)
The Buccaneers got destroyed in New Orleans last week, losing 41-0. I generally like taking teams off a blowout loss. Teams in this situation tend to be overlooked, undervalued, and embarrassed. The most recent case of this was the Cardinals’ blowing out the Lions as huge home dogs last week after that 52-0 loss in Arizona the week...
